The ACLA has begun accepting submissions for its Undergraduate Seminar at the 2012 Annual Meeting!
The undergraduate panel at the ACLA is a unique opportunity for undergraduates from local universities to participate in a scholarly conference in comparative literature. Students from area universities and colleges will present their best work to each other, attend other presentations of interest, and gain insight into the academic world beyond their own institutions. Students will present a paper of 8-10 pages (for a presentation of about 15 minutes) to other their peers from neighboring schools. Discussion will be moderated by a faculty member.
We invite students to submit abstracts of papers or projects related to this theme, or of interest more broadly across literatures and disciplines. To get a sense of the range of possible subjects, please review the varied seminar titles on the full conference website (http://acla.org/acla2012/). Our primary aim is to provide a platform for advanced undergraduate students to exchange ideas, gain exposure to the discipline of comparative literature, and see presentations by scholars in their fields of study.
Interested students should submit their abstracts of up to 250 words by Feb. 15 (at 5PM EST) to the ACLA conference website. We will send notifications by February 27th.
